Young people in Cornwall are being warned about the dangers of tombstoning-where thrillseekers jump from a height into water.

Safer Cornwall say the recent hot weather has prompted some people to participate in the high risk activity which is unregulated and unsupervised. Since 2004, 70 people have been injured from tombstoning and 20 have died.
